In our classroom, we spend some time every Friday afternoon thinking about our week and setting a goal for the next week. This year, I'm trying something new with those goals which is bringing about awesome results. I'm linking up today with Joanne at Head Over Heels for Teaching for her Spark Student Motivation linky party.
I used to have my students write their goal for the week on a Post-it and stick it on their desk. However, some students "forget" to do this, the Post-its fall off the desk and get recycled by the janitor, or a student's goal Post-it magically disappears throughout the week.
So this year, we are making our weekly goals a bit more public. On the closet door at the front of our room, my students post their goals for all to see.
How do you help your students reach their goals in your classroom? I'd love to hear your ideas!
Thank you, Joanne, for hosting this weekly linky party!
